Coronavirus in Norway
Our campuses are open. Please read updated information for students and staff on our website.
Zoom is available on PC, Mac, smartphone or tablet. Download the Zoom client or app beforehand. To download and install Zoom, follow the guide on the Canvas website, under “English resources”.
NB! Choose Sign in with SSO and type in 'oslomet' after you've installed the Zoom Client.
To make full use of Zoom, plug in your headphones and webcam.
To make the connection run smoother, turn off all applications on your computer that you do not need for the meeting. Connect your headphones.
Copy the meeting URL, meeting identification number and password, and send it to the participants.
In Zoom, find the buttons “Raise hand” and “Chat” under “Participants”.
Click “Raise hand” to get the attention of the lecturer if you have a question or a comment. Use the chat for communicating in writing.
It may be a good idea to mute your microphone and turn off video in a large group. This will make the application use less data which can help it run smoother. The lecturer may also turn off the microphone option for the whole group.
You cannot upload files and resources directly in a Zoom meeting, but you can share your screen. You can also paste links to OneDrive files/Sharepoint files/documents in the chat.
Sikkerheten i videoløsningen Zoom er mye diskutert. OsloMet har tatt forholdsregler som reduserer risikoen. Det er viktig å oppdatere Zoom når du får beskjed om at det er kommet nye versjoner.
